Chipotle Nacho Burger
1 1/4 pounds 90% lean ground beef
1 1/2 teaspoons ground chipotle chile pepper
4 slices (1 oz.) Monterey jack cheese
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
1 cup mild or medium salsa
In large bowl, with hand, mix beef, chipotle, and 1/4 teaspoon salt until blended, but do not overmix. Shape beef mixture into four 3 1/2-inch patties, handling meat as little as possible for best texture.
Lightly spray ridged grill pan or 12-inch skillet with nonstick cooking spray, then heat on medium until hot.
Place burgers in hot grill pan. For medium, cook 6 minutes, turn burgers over, and cook 3 minutes longer. Top each burger with 1 slice cheese; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until cheese melts.
To serve, place burgers on buns and top with salsa.
